Chapter 4 in 2017 Global Hunger Index: The inequalities of hunger, 2017, pp 30-31 from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)
Although enough food is produced globally to feed the world, hunger persists—largely the product of various and severe inequalities. Yet neither hunger nor inequality is inevitable; both are rooted in uneven power relations that often are perpetuated and exacerbated by laws, policies, attitudes, and practices.
